Once there, you'll have the opportunity to spend the next three hours exploring this beautiful area, which includes hiking trails, an ice-skating rink, the Trailside Museums and Zoo, Iona Island Estuarine Reserve and Bird Refuge, Perkins Tower, the Merry-Go-Round and pavilion, and the Bear Mountain Inn.

Located in the woods of southern New Hampshire, The MacDowell Colony has been giving artists the freedom to create and interact with other artists across disciplines for 100 years. Leonard Bernstein, Willa Cather, Aaron Copeland, Galway Kinnell, Virgil Thompson, Alice Walker and Thornton Wilder have all retreated there.
